Primrose Bakery print

This is another London-based print, of Primrose Bakery, Tavistock Street, Covent Garden. I posted a drawing of the cafe a few months ago. The print has more drawing than earlier prints, after the aquatint disaster a fortnight ago I decided to concentrate on drawing to show the scene, rather than using complicated tones to describe the shapes and areas of light and dark. This also means I can draw on the plate at home and really take my time, then bring it in to bite in the print studio.
Some colour will be added with watercolour, just a couple, such as yellow for the door and some tulips, and pink for the girl's apron.
